SSL street light trends are clearly moving toward better quality of light and elimination of uplight and glare, and the Cree project, in conjunction with LightSmart Energy Consulting, delivers those benefits in Newburyport, MA.
Cree has announced an LED retrofit project to the street lights in the quaint seaside community of Newburyport, MA, and the project delivers both quality light and significant energy savings. As we wrote after the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Street & Area Lighting Conference (SALC) 2018, the trend in outdoor solid-state lighting (SSL) is clearly better light - less glare and uplight and more pleasing spectrum. The New England SSL project delivered by LightSmart Energy Consulting in partnership with Cree achieves pleasing and effective lighting and also demonstrates another trend toward municipalities taking control of their street light portfolio.
Newburyport has had an established energy savings initiative throughout the city and has been recognized by the state of Massachusetts as a Green Community cutting energy usage by 20%. But the city saw an additional opportunity to cut energy use and save taxpayer money when new state legislation allowed municipalities to own their street lights. Previously, such lighting was utility owned and controlled. But many municipalities around the US are taking control of their outdoor lighting, including some Southern California cities in the inland Empire that we wrote about recently.
In Newburyport, the city was spending around $250,000 dollars annually on its street lights. The municipality engaged with George Woodbury, president of LightSmart Energy Consulting, to explore avenues to save money. Woodbury had in fact worked on the legislation that enabled municipalities to own such lights and he suggested that Newburyport take over its portfolio and convert the lights to LED sources.
